Very nice and clean place. We stayed there only one night but the room was very clean and comfortable, no problem with credit card. As we stay there only for a night I cannot say more details about that place but I recommend it and I would stay there again.

Island Vibe was welcoming from the outset. We booked a double room en suite which was clean, spacious with adequate storage for clothes. The reception team were very helpful and were able to book activities for our three day stay. We made good use of the mountain bike hire (hour/half day/day). SAMREC, local mall, beachfront bars and the casino complex... More

This is a wonderful place and the rate is very reasonable. The room we stayed in was big and the bed very comfortable.Though we couldn't use the pool because of the weather, it was very clean. The hospitallity was amazing. We hope the jaccuzi will be fixed when we return next year.

The place is excellent,the dorms are comfortable, clean and sleeps only 4 people and has enough space for luggage. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Of special mention Eve knows a lot about things to do in PE and good places to stay in SA, she is always smiling and available to help.
